We Love to Love Linen

Linen bedding – there is something about it that sets it apart from everything else. Perhaps it’s due to linen’s rich history – after all, it’s one of the oldest textiles in the world, dating back nearly 10,000 years. Or perhaps it’s because linen is the strongest natural fiber in the world – it has been used to strengthen paper money and even once woven into armor worn by ancient Greek warriors.

Really, there a million reasons to love linen, and so many qualities that make linen bedding truly special; starting with the fact that it is the original technical fabric. Linen can absorb nearly 20% of its weight in moisture before even feeling damp (take that, fancy workout shirt). It also helps regulate body temperature, with a unique, breathable weave that lets air flow and keeps skin cool in warmer months and warm in the colder ones.

Linen bedding also gets better with age – just like we do! Over time, with washing and use, linen actually softens, while retaining its durability and breathability. And, linen is naturally hypoallergenic, making it a good choice for those who may be allergy-prone or have sensitive skin. Did we mention that linen is also resistant to bacteria, fungus and dust mites and a good set of linen sheets can last for decades?

Let’s not forget one of the best aspects of linen bedding – its timeless elegance and style. Linen looks fabulous in any room – whether in crisp white, soothing pastels or gorgeously dyed in bold, rich hues.

But What About Wrinkles?!
Yes, it’s no secret that linen bedding tends to wrinkle, but we think that is just part of the laid-back, rumpled charm. If you’re wrinkle resistant (ha!), there are simple steps to take to minimize the wrinkling, such as drying on low heat in an uncrowded dryer, then promptly removing and folding when dry.
